While Thanksgiving is a holiday when families come together to celebrate and give thanks, it is also a great time to make lasting memories. Here are some ideas to incorporate into your celebration to make more amazing memories!
1. Ditch the technologyPut those phones, tablets and laptops away and enjoy the company that surrounds you. 2. Make dinner from scratch Dig deep into your skills and make that delicious dinner from scratch. A homemade meal can be healthier as well as fun. Get messy and make some yummy food! 3. Put everyone on the spot Have everyone go around the table and tell something that they are thankful for. You can even have everyone name a good quality about the other guests, such as caring, beautiful, understanding, etc. 4. Take a walk Before the turkey is done or after you have stuffed yourself, get outside and take a walk. Enjoy the day and the beauty of nature. 5. Volunteer or Donate Remember, this holiday is about giving thanks, and a great way to do that is to help others. Volunteer at a local shelter, food bank, or your favorite charity. If you can't volunteer on Thanksgiving, talk with your family about what you would like to do in the future and make a plan.
However your family gives thanks, be sure to have a happy Thanksgiving!
